In the Brussels Conference for Supporting Syria and the Region (May 2022), Lebanon repeated its call for refugees to return to Syria. Earlier that month, it also formally announced to the UNHCR that the country can no longer host Syrian refugees, largely due to unfulfilled financial pledges and Lebanon’s ongoing and deep economic crisis.
How do key external actors like the European Union (EU), which funds refugee aid and provides resilience-building programs in Lebanon, deal with such calls for refugee return? And how does the EU’s vision for building resilience in a distressed state mesh with Lebanon’s policy on the return of refugees?
